Intense cardio.

Like that and like — all that kind of stuff.

Thank you for the preview of your own choreography there. A sneak peak.

Yeah, that’s something I’m working on. Cut that out. I don’t want people seeing that. I want it to be a surprise.

It’s not ready yet.

Hi, I’m Noah Kahan, and this is Billboard News.

Lyndsey Havens:
Hey, I’m Lyndsey Havens for Billboard News, and we are here with the incredible singer-songwriter Noah Kahan.

Did I get that last name, right? I’ve heard a lot of different ways.

Noah Kahan:
Yeah, you are one of the first. There’s only one way to say it, by the way. It’s Kahan. You did a great job. Thank you very much.

Lyndsey Havens:
People overcomplicate it!

Noah Kahan:
People … well, it’s like there’s two As. I say, “One of the As is silent and you get to pick which one.”

Lyndsey Havens:
If you could describe your last 12 months, I think it’s nuts, because obviously, you’ve been making music for a really long time, and you had success. But then suddenly, everything changed and it hit a next level.

Noah Kahan:
It’s been an unbelievable few months, like a year and a half basically now of just, like, whirlwind of attention and this wonderful, like, outpouring of love from fans. A lot of, like, a lot more commitments that I’m in, which has been, like, the big challenge for me has just been balancing, like, trying to have my life, trying to write music and be creative and be inspired by the world, but also being really busy, being on the road all the time.

Lyndsey Havens:
Yeah.

Noah Kahan:
I’m kind of navigating it. It has been really challenging, but really cool, and it’s an opportunity and an experience that not all artists get. And so I’m very aware of the privilege of this year for me.
